I keep having numbness and burning, and purplish to blue discoloration starting from my elbows to my finger tips and of my ankles and feet and rapid heartbeat. Could you tell me what this could be from?

  • I would go see a heart specialist...My grandmother had the samething and her heart could not pump hard enough to circulate the blood in her body...She was relatively young in her 50's and had to have a pace maker put in to help...she lived a long full life. But I would seek help right away.
